    Background:
    Sam Clipperton, one of Australia's rising stars, enjoyed success with the elite Godolphin operation, for which he rode five G2 wins, before relocating to Hong Kong for the 2016/17 season. He finished his debut Hong Kong campaign with 40 wins to place joint-fifth in the premiership standings. He competed in showjumping and eventing and also some rodeo in his youth before discovering horse racing as a teenager. He left school at 15 and joined the stable of eight-time Sydney champion jockey and Hall of Famer Ron Quinton. Clipperton made his race-riding debut aboard Nine Dragons at Wyong on 16 July, 2010. His breakthrough came the following season in which he notched 23 wins. In 2014 he became the first rider since Bobby El-Issa 20 years earlier to win the Sydney apprentice title twice in succession. His best season to date came in 2014/15 as he racked up 81 wins. He notched a first G1 win in March, 2016 atop Peeping in the Coolmore Classic for his old boss and mentor Quinton, who also guided Hugh Bowman's early career. He partnered his first four-timer at Rosehill on 19 December, 2015.
